Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why simple truths & facts on race need defending in post-Obama America

We wish it were as easy as making things up when we’re in need of the details, but with the left’s virtually unchallenged promotion of falsities and lies on race, our society is in bad need of the truth. Therefore it’s up to all of us to be vigilant in defense of the real facts.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Presidential’ UN speech puts Trump’s world legitimacy crisis to rest

With greater international acceptance of his legitimate position as president, Trump’s domestic polling numbers will continue to tick up in the coming months. If the GOP Congress is able to add a few legislative victories to his resume Trump will look awful good indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump has become the epitome of the un-Republican

Donald Trump is doing things differently; he’s upset the Washington status quo and people are responding to it. Trump’s moves may look strange from a conventional standpoint but it’s clear there’s more to him than meets the eye. He’s very un-Republican-like indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: By flirting with Dems is Trump just trying to make GOP leaders envious?

The days and weeks ahead will reveal more of what President Trump really thinks about immigration. For now conservatives should be confident that he has not yet revealed all of his cards. Above all Trump wants to keep his promises; perhaps he needs a little leeway to do just that.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment still suffers from Steve Bannon derangement syndrome

Donald Trump’s political legacy is yet to be fully written. He’s a one-of-a-kind force in American politics. If Republican leaders were smart they’d follow his lead or the voters just might recognize the GOP for what it’s become: an establishment party that doesn’t stand for anything.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Conservatives beware of West Wing Democrat salesmen bearing promises

Passing tax reform should be a no-brainer for the GOP. They run on the issue every year and there’s broad consensus that rates need to be cut. Donald Trump’s presidency could hinge on what takes place in the next few months; beyond that, the entire republic could be at stake.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection prospects already plain for all to see

If Donald Trump continues to push the right political buttons – and Republicans in Congress actually move forward on the agenda he articulated during last year’s campaign – he will win over more voters and his current popularity numbers won’t be a problem.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Betsy DeVos and Hillary Clinton -- a Tale of Two Washington Women

It used to be the Constitution brought Americans together but that’s no longer true. These days, as Betsy DeVos demonstrated, returning to our country’s founding principles only brings one scorn, condemnation and evil wishes from people who use the system for their own aims.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could the best option on North Korea be to simply do nothing?

If some politician out there has a better solution than the man on the street to the North Korea situation, we’d all like to hear it. In the meantime Americans simply want their towns and cities protected and their sons and daughters to remain safely away from any military conflict.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could trained chimps help Donald Trump more than Ryan and McConnell?

Donald Trump seems driven by a determination to “Make America Great Again” by making everything shine just like one of his skyscrapers. Republican leaders could work effectively with the president if they only understood what really motivates him. Will they ever learn?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans expect more than fumbled fair catch of Trump’s DACA punt

Should Republicans bow to the will of the Democrats and all of the scaremongers on the DACA/amnesty issue they’ll suffer politically. The base merely asks for immigration policy to be set by Congress and enforced by the executive. Trump’s order on Tuesday only reinforces it.

Charlottesville false narrative crushed by DHS warning

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

Victims and their lawyers should be swooning about lawsuits against McAuliffe, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the City of Charlottesville under legal doctrines of negligence or “state-created danger.” There may also be federal civil rights violations ripe for a Department of Justice investigation if Jeff Sessions acts quickly to preserve evidence. Charlottesville has been used for political purposes to attack Donald Trump and conservatives as racists. The false narrative even underlying those claims appears to be worse than originally suspected.

Democrats Welcome Chairman Mao To America

Republicans and conservatives must force themselves to recognize that the violence perpetrated in Charlottesville, Philadelphia and Berkeley was just the probing movements of a coming hardcore Leftist revolution that intends through violence and intimidation to destroy constitutional liberty.

The Media Normalize the Antifa Extreme

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The rulebook is being shredded. The antifa movement, or anti-fascist movement of far-left-leaning militant groups, is justifying violent action in the streets to beat back racists and neo-Nazis. Violence — not as an accidental outburst but as an explicit strategy — used to be seen as a beyond-the-pale extreme. Now NBC's Chuck Todd & Co. are ushering antifa's extreme into polite society.

Donald Trump's Problematic Device

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

President Donald Trump is in trouble again with his Moral Superiors. His problem, of course, is that he cannot throttle his B.S. Detector. Trump it seems at some point in life acquired a B.S. Detector that has usually served him well. The Detector sounds an alarm when it perceives B.S., and during the Charlottesville disruptions it went wild. Every time the Mainstream Media or a political figure (usually a Democrat) began vituperating against only one side in a manifestly two-sided conflict, Trump’s B.S. Detector could not be ignored.
